But especially thank goodness for jet travel, calm (wonderful) boyfriends and Virgin Airlines. Alex called on his way to the ER; one hour later I had booked a flight from San Francisco. Within 3 hours I was on a plane to Seattle.
Alex is fine, I am still a little shaky.
Cannot begin to tell you all how much it helped to sleep all night in a cozy bed and to wake up at Suzanne's to an absolutely stunning Pacific Northwest day in Poulsbo.
